Fiserv (NASDAQ: FISV), the leading global provider of financial services technology solutions, today announced the availability of Fraud Risk Manager 4.6, the newest version of its multi-channel fraud detection and management solution.
Also available is AML Manager 4.6, the market-leading anti-money laundering solution. Both Fraud Risk Manager and AML Manager from Fiserv are designed to enhance and optimize financial institutions' financial crime risk management operations, by delivering best-in-class fraud and anti-money laundering (AML) transaction monitoring solutions, integrated with a common platform for automated alert intelligence and investigation, case management and regulatory reporting.
Offering Fraud Risk Manager and AML Manager on a unified platform allows for not only shared functionality but also increased efficiencies through potential utilization of common resources and reduced maintenance and hardware costs. As more banks look to consolidate their fraud and anti-money laundering functions, this unified platform supports the associated business driver for an enterprise-wide view of risk.
Neil Katkov, PhD, senior vice president of Celent's Asia Research Group said, "Financial institutions are seeking ways to integrate their compliance and fraud operations in order to create an enterprise-wide view of risk, but siloed business units and systems are a significant barrier. Solutions that address this issue have the potential to bring the goal of enterprise compliance closer and to help generate efficiencies on both an organizational and systems level."
"At Fiserv, we are taking a 'glass bottom boat' approach to our risk management strategy - that is, to provide a complete and consolidated view of all risk and risk mitigation plans across the entire enterprise," said John Filby, president, Risk Management Solutions at Fiserv. "Our vision is to deliver the market leading suite of financial crime risk management products through integration and delivery of our best-in-class fraud and anti-money laundering transaction and event monitoring systems. The latest releases that we are announcing today are a vital part of the delivery on this vision."
